annoying issue with facebook. new stock phone

I just got my wife a new thunderbolt, and for now it's running stock sense.
the Facebook app has an annoying issue however.
When she views the news feed or her profile, the screen shows a zoomed in view, and cuts off about 1/3 of the right side of the page. So , she has to scroll left and right constantly in order to read every post entirely. there is no way that i can find to zoom out.

I'll be rooting and tossing cm7 on it soon enough, but I was just wondering if anyone else had seen this issue before and knew a quick fix.

Never heard of such a thing, especially considering you can't even zoom in the area you're referring to. Try clearing cache and data on the app itself from the Settings -> Applications menu. If that fails, remove and reinstall the app.

thanks for the response. and yea, it's very strange considering there is no zoom options. Tried the things you listed. cleared cache/data then reinstalled but unfortunately its still behaving this way. It's almost as if the app doesn't recognize the correct screen size. i may try a master reset.
anyway, thanks for the advice, hopefully a new fb update or putting cm7 on will fix.
The only time that I have noticed this is when my build.prop was modified (to represent a different device for the Madden 12 download). Once I switched it back, Facebook went back to normal.

Interesting.. There's no way to check/reset the build.prop file without root correct? Just strange that this is happening on a stock / unrooted tbolt.
i've tried doing a master reset as well, still same issue.

thanks for the tip
